Santosh Thati Guruji Pranam ... what do u mean by ‘ detached attachment’ for a lay man like me.. plz ... let me understand when I am alive... ur mercy
Kavitha Roopa i am unsure but as per my level of uderstanding, detached attachment meaning.. without any emotional imbalances, conditions, not clinging on to someone like family or somrthing like properties etc..
WHAT I LIKE IN KAVITHA'S REPLY IS WHAT IS BELIEVED TO BE TRUE.....KAVITHA YOU ARE PARTIALLY CORRECT.....
NOT TO CLING ON, BUT BEING CARING AND LOVING... IS DETACHED ATTACHMENT

'KO VISHAM ? AVADHEERANA GURUSHU'....

'WHAT IS POISON? WHEN THE GURU IS DISRESPECTED THAT IS POISON'....
-ADI SHANKARA.....PRASHNOTTARA RATNA MALIKA...
WHEN ONE IS IN GURUKULAM, OTHERS LOOK AT THE DISCIPLE.... THROUGH THE DISCIPLE, THEY UNDERSTAND THE QUALITY OF THE MASTER... SO THE DISCIPLE REFLECTS THE MASTER.... THE DISCIPLE, MANASA, VAACHA, KARMANA (MIND, SPEECH, ACTION) SHOULD BE VIGILANT AND NOT DO ANYTHING THAT AFFECTS THE REPUTATION OF THE MASTER....
WHEN THE DISCIPLE'S ACTIONS COST THE REPUTATION OF THE MASTER, IT IS NOTHING ELSE BUT DISGRACE TO THE MASTER AND HENCE POISON....

SA YEE....
once upon a time Guruji chided a devotee for getting too anxious about the welfare of his family and the fate of property after his death. He was told that once he is dead, there is nothing like a family. On the other hand we pray to our departed elders and seek their blessings for our well being. Where is the gap in my understanding ? Pranaams
THIS IS VERY SIMPLE SAYEE..... AS LONG AS YOU LIVE, YOU ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE A 'DETACHED ATTACHMENT' WITH THE FAMILY.....
AFTER DEATH, IT IS MORE A PITRU STATUS AND HENCE A 'ATTACHED DETACHMENT'....
SO AFTER DEATH THE SAME PERSON BECOMES A PITRU AND LIVES MORE LIKE A SANYASI IN THE PITRU LOKA.... SO TO ATTRACT HIM AND TAKES HIS BLESSINGS WE PRAY TO HIM TO COME BACK.... THE PITRUS HAVE A 'ATTACHED DETACHMENT' WHICH IS NOT GOOD FOR DEVELOPMENT OF GENERATIONS IN THE FAMILY... SO YOU PRAY TO THEM FOR THEIR BLESSINGS AND 'GHAR WAPASI'....
WHEN YOU LIVE YOU SHOULD HAVE 'DETACHED ATTACHMENT' WITH THE FAMILY... ON DEATH YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT.... HENCE THE ABOVE STATEMENT....

TO BE GROUNDED FIRMLY AND BE DOWN TO EARTH IS AN ASPECT OF 'STHITHAPRAGNYA'...
A MAN OF WISDOM KNOWS THE ART OF LOOKING AT EVERYTHING UNEQUIVOCALLY... HE CAN OBSERVE EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE WITH UTMOST CLARITY AND UNDERSTANDS IN THE WAY IN WHICH IT HAS TO BE UNDERSTOOD... HE IS NON JUDGMENTAL BUT STILL INTERNALLY RETAINS THE POWER OF DISCRIMINATIVE KNOWLEDGE.... HE POSSESSES DISCRIMINATIVE KNOWLEDGE, BUT DOESN'T DISCRIMINATE.... HE VERY WELL KNOWS THAT EVERYTHING IS DONE BY THE LORD AND LOOKS AT EVERYTHING WITH COMPLETE DISPASSION...
HE IS IN SHORT LORD KRISHNA HIMSELF....

'STHITHA'...MEANS STABLE, FIRMLY ROOTED, UNWAVERING, DETERMINED, COURAGEOUS ETC.,
'PRAGNYA'... CONSCIOUS, WISDOM, COSMIC INTELLIGENCE, AWARENESS ETC.,
RIG VEDA SAYS 'PRAGYANAM BRAHMA'..... AWARENESS, PURE CONSCIOUSNESS, INTELLIGENCE IS BRAHMAN...
WHY DID LORD KRISHNA USE 'STHITHA' WHEN PRAGYANA ITSELF IS BRAHMAN?
IT SEEMS SOMETIMES, THE ILLUSION FROM THE LORD MAKES ONE TO BECOME CONSCIOUS TEMPORARILY .... TO RETAIN THAT CONSCIOUSNESS FOR EVER HE USED THE WORD 'STHITHA' IN BHAGAVAD GITA....
ARJUNA HAD 'PRAGYANA' BUT HE WAS WAVERING... HE WAS CONSCIOUS BUT NOT ETERNALLY CONSCIOUS... HIS MIND WAVERED ON SEEING HIS BROTHERS, COUSINS, GURUS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF KURUSHETRA....
SO LORD WANTED TO AMEND WHAT WAS SAID IN RIG VEDA... HE ADDED 'STHITHA' AFTER SEEING ARJUNA'S PLIGHT....

Soujanya Ayachitula Guruji is it that even by knowing whats happening and having the capacity to be able to infer good or bad; right or wrong; just being a witness and learn out of it without being Judgemental? Pranams 🙏❤
EXACTLY ...WELL UNDERSTOOD SOUJANYA..... THAT TOO ETERNALLY.... NOT IN INSTALMENTS.... BEING AWARE ETERNALLY.....
FIRST YOU SHOULD LEARN TO OBSERVE.....THEN CONSCIOUSLY WITNESS... WITHOUT BEING JUDGMENTAL..... DRAW INFERENCE.... AND NOT TO DISCRIMINATE....
IF ONE DISCRIMINATES, HE BECOMES JUDGMENTAL.... SO ABSOLUTELY NO DISCRIMINATION... BUT A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED.... INTROSPECTION AND ASSIMILATION THERE OF...
WE HAVE NOT COME TO JUDGE....
THIS IS 'STHITHAPRAGNYA'....

Soujanya Ayachitula Humble Pranams Guruji 🙏 Arjuma who himself was a Mahaveera struggled to get to the stage of Sthitha pragnya...what about someone ignorant like me deva....not sure how many janmas i will have to take...to get to the state of Pragnya itself a great amount of dedication and perseverance is needed...how to attain the state of Sthitha deva...only your graceand grace alone can save us🙏🙇🙏🌹🌹🌹
ARJUNA IS NOT SOME ONE..... IT IS SOUJANYA.... WHEN YOU GET DOUBTS, WHEN YOU FEEL INFERIOR OR SUPERIOR, WHEN YOU WAVER, WHEN YOU GET DEPRESSED, WHEN YOU ARE JUDGMENTAL, WHEN YOU ARE PASSIONATE, YOU ARE ARJUNA.....
LORD KRISHNA TOO IS NOT SOME ONE....IT IS SOUJANYA.... WHEN YOU HAVE CLARITY, WHEN YOU ARE A WITNESS, WHEN YOU ARE NON JUDGMENTAL, WHEN YOU HAVE THE POWER OF DISCRIMINATION BUT DO NOT DISCRIMINATE, WHEN YOU ARE AWARE AND CONSCIOUS, OF COURSE ETERNALLY, YOU ARE LORD KRISHNA....
SO BOTH IS IN YOU... ONE FEARS, THE OTHER IS COURAGEOUS.... WE ARE ALL DICHOTOMOUS BY NATURE .... THAT'S WHY WE EXPERIENCE BOTH 'JIVA' AND 'PARAMA' IN LIFE....

INTELLECT IS COSMETIC.... INTELLIGENCE IS COSMIC....
A COSMETIC THING IS ARTIFICIAL.... COSMIC THING IS NATURAL....
SO TO ME 'ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE' TERM IS A MISNOMER... IT IS 'ARTIFICIAL INTELLECT'.... INTELLECT IS DISCRIMINATIVE KNOWLEDGE AND  DISCRIMINATES...INTELLIGENCE IS NATURAL, COSMIC THOUGH INCLUDES DISCRIMINATIVE KNOWLEDGE BUT DOESN'T DISCRIMINATE....

May 2018 -9

ALWAYS AFTER WE CROSS THE TIME, WE LONG BACK FOR THAT MOMENT... WHEN WE ARE IN THAT MOMENT, WE NEVER REALISED, HOW PRECIOUS IT WAS..... MIND ALWAYS REPENTS ON PAST OR DREAMS ABOUT FUTURE..... UNFORTUNATELY TO LIVE EVERY SINGLE MOMENT , YOU NEED NOT HAVE TO THINK... IT JUST FALLS IN PLACE... WHEN IT IS MIND, IT IS EITHER PAST OR FUTURE BUT  NEVER THIS MOMENT....

TODAY I WAS TOLD THAT IT IS 'MOTHER'S DAY'....
I AM HAPPY IN THIS BUSY WORLD AT LEAST A DAY TO REMEMBER 'MOTHER' HAS BEEN ALLOTTED....
IN OUR TRADITION WE SAY...'MATRU DEVO BHAVA'..... YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER HER AND SHE IS YOUR BREATH AND LIFE.... SHE IS GOD TO YOU AND SELDOM YOU FORGET HER OR HER SERVICES.... MOTHERHOOD IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST DIVINE....
NO NECESSITY TO REMEMBER HER ONLY ONE DAY IN A YEAR....

THE WORLD BY DEFAULT IS BETTER PRESUMED AS 'OPPORTUNISTIC'..... VERY RARELY YOU WILL FIND PEOPLE, WHO WILL MOVE WITH YOU WITHOUT ANY PRECONCEIVED NOTION OR AGENDA IN THEIR MIND.... SOME LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE, THEY HAVE NEVER LIVED A CONSUMMATE AND HAPPY LIFE.... SOME  OTHERS ARE OPPORTUNISTIC BECAUSE OF GREED.... IF YOU ARE A PERSON OF INTELLIGENCE OR AWARENESS, YOU CAN ALWAYS SPOT SUCH PEOPLE AND KEEP AWAY FROM THEM....

NORMALLY WE TEND TO USE THE WORD 'I' IN ENGLISH WHEN WE SPEAK.... IT'S NOT THE USAGE OF 'I' MATTERS , BUT THE 'INTENTION' BEHIND 'I' THAT MATTERS....

LIFE IS JUST A MIRACLE OF GOD... TO REALISE IT AS A MIRACLE, WE NEED HIS GRACE.... OTHERWISE LIFE LOOKS MECHANICAL AND DRY..... LIFE LOOKS MEANING LESS AND YOU START SEARCHING FOR MEANING.... YOU NEVER LIVE THIS LIFE....

'ANNAM BAHUKUR VEEDHA'
-YAJUR VEDA.....TAITTREYA UPANISHAD...
IT IS HIS GRACE THAT LORD MADE ME REMOVE THE STONES IN THE LAND.... NOW IT IS HIS GRACE THAT I SOW THE SEEDS.... THE SEEDS WILL GERMINATE TO GIVE A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST.... IT'S JUST HIS GRACE, THAT PERFORMS THE MIRACLE OF ABUNDANCE OF FOOD FOR BODY, MIND AND SOUL....

VERY FEW PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD REALLY BELIEVE IN A DECISION TAKEN AND STICK ON TO IT.... MANY KEEP CHANGING DECISIONS AS MOOD SWINGS....
NOT EVERY ONE IS BLESSED WITH 'STHITHAPRAJNA'... ONE MUST BE BLESSED WITH TOTAL EMOTIONAL STABILITY TO ACHIEVE IT.... A 'STHITHAPRAJNA' IS AN EMOTIONALLY BALANCED AND STABLE PERSON... IT IS A FORTUNE IF ANY ONE FINDS ONE.... HE CAN BE RELIED UPON .... WHAT HE PRACTICES AND SAYS WILL BE UNDENIABLE TRUTH.... HE IS A MAN OF WISDOM....

'REALISATION' IS TOTALLY A DIFFERENT BALL GAME THAN 'KNOWLEDGE'....
ALL REALISED PERSONS ARE KNOWLEDGABLE BUT NOT ALL KNOWLEDGABLE PERSONS ARE REALISED....
WHEN KNOWLEDGE TRANSFORMS IN TO REALISATION, WE SEE AN EDUCATED PERSON..... A PERSON FULL OF WISDOM..... HE GOES WITH THE FLOW OF LIFE.... HE IS ALWAYS JOYOUS OBLIVIOUS OF WHAT HAPPENS AROUND.... HE IS MORE IN TO HIMSELF AND IS VERY MEDITATIVE.... HE PRAYS FOR THE WELFARE OF ONE AND ALL....
WHERE AS ONE LIMITED WITH KNOWLEDGE IS MORE EGOISTIC.... HE WILL BE SELF CENTRED AND SELF PROPAGATIVE.... HIS WAYS WILL BE DUBIOUS.... HE LIVES A LIFE FULL OF AGGRESSIVENESS... CONSEQUENTIALLY HE IS UNHAPPY BUT POSES OTHERWISE....HE IS MORE SUPERFICIAL AND HIS KNOWLEDGE IS A THREAT TO UNITY OF THE SOCIETY....

THE POSSIBILITY OF SHARING OCCURS ONLY WHEN YOU LIVE.... ON DEATH BED, WE CANNOT SHARE..... SO WHEN WE LIVE WE HAVE TO SHARE.... IF WE HAVE MONEY, WE SHOULD SHARE IT WITH THE NEEDY....IF WE HAVE LOVE, WE SHOULD SHARE IT WITH THOSE WHO LONG FOR IT....IF WE HAVE TIME, SHARE IT WITH THOSE WHO FEEL LONELY.... SHARE WHEN YOU LIVE.... ON DEATH BED, ANY HOW IT IS GOING TO BE SNATCHED....

Mounika Madgula Hi Guruji. We see people taking the risk while starting business. Borrowing itself is when it's beyond one's capacity. It's more a gamble. Sometimes it succeeds sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it might be slow and picks up over a period of time and viceversa. How do we know if the risk is going to work or not?
MOUNY, THE BAROMETER IS INSIDE..... IT WARNS.... ONE MUST BE PREPARED TO LISTEN TO IT..... WHEN YOU START A COMPANY AND YOU NEED AN INVESTMENT OF RS.10/-, AT LEAST ONE SHOULD HAVE HIS OWN FUNDS IN THE RANGE OF RS.3/- TO RS. 4/-.... REST RS.6/- OR RS.7/- CAN BE BORROWED..... WITHOUT ANY INVESTMENT FROM YOUR SIDE, BORROWING FOR SUCH INVESTMENT AND DEPENDING ON 100% CREDIT TO RUN A BUSINESS IS JUST FOOLISH..... WHEN GREED OVERTAKES A PERSON'S DESIRE, THEY ARE BLINDED AND GET IN TO TROUBLE FROM WHICH BAILING OUT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE...

THE OTHER DAY Mounika Madgula WAS SHARING THAT THERE ARE INVESTORS WHO WOULD LIKE TO INVEST IN IDEAS THAT PROMOTE WELFARE GROWTH..... YEAH LOT OF START UP COMPANIES HAVE GROWN BIG DUE TO SUCH INVESTMENTS.....
BUT MENTALITY OF PEOPLE AFTER INVESTING LOOKS DISCOURAGING.... VERY FEW PEOPLE REALLY HAVE THE MATURITY TO WAIT FOR THE START UPS TO YIELD RESULTS.... THEY WANT EVERYTHING OVERNIGHT.... THEY WANT THE INVESTMENTS TO DOUBLE, TREBLE IN UNREASONABLY SHORTER PERIOD OF TIME.... IT'S NOT HARRY POTTER'S MAGIC WAND TO PRODUCE ANYTHING YOUY WANT..... I KNOW SOME INVESTORS WHO WERE VERY IMMATURE , DUE TO LACK OF SUBJECT KNOWLEDGE  AND HAVE KILLED SOME WONDERFUL START UPS.....
SO AS LONG AS THE HUMAN ELEMENT OF GREED EXISTS, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR THOSE WHO BORROW TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN BUSINESS AND REPAY THEIR DEBTS....
EVEN IF SOME ONE IS PREPARED TO INVEST IN YOUR COMPANY, YOU HAVE TO THOROUGHLY CHECK THE INTENTIONS OF THE PERSON SO INVESTING.... HALF WAY THROUGH, HE MUST NOT CREATE TROUBLE... FURTHER IT IS BETTER TO BE HONEST AND REVEAL AS TO WHEN YOU ARE LIKELY TO REACH BREAK EVEN, SO THAT THE INVESTOR WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO DECIDE WHETHER TO INVEST OR NOT...

Radha Krishna Sateesh Nakirikanti Pranams Bhagawan... Well guided with your Divine words... Please elaborate about Honesty... whether we have to honest in making decisions or honest in money matters...
RADHA..... HONEST IN ALL RESPECTS WHICH INCLUDES DECISION MAKING, MONEY MATTERS, RELATIONSHIP WITH WIFE ETC., YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO BE HONEST
24 X 7 365 DAYS.... NOT SELECTIVELY HONEST, BUT COLLECTIVELY HONEST....

WE TALK A LOT ABOUT TWO OPPOSITE ELEMENTS THESE DAYS....
-PRIVACY
-TRANSPERANCY....
WHERE WE MUST BE PRIVATE, WE ARE TRANSPARENT AND WHERE WE SHOULD BE TRANSPARENT, WE ARE PRIVATE....

YOU TOO WILL GET AGED SOME DAY.... SO BE GENTLE AND KIND TO ELDERS.... SPEAK SOFTLY AND DON'T BARK AT THEM.....

I DO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO EARN MORE, SO THAT YOU ALL CAN HELP ME TO DO MY PRAYOGAMS..... HOPE YOU ALL REMEMBER THAT WHENEVER YOU EARN SOMETHING MORE.... I NEED MY BOYS AND GIRLS TO SUPPORT ME TO DO PRAYERS BETTER.... UNLESS THE UNDER CURRENT OF MY BEING A PART OF YOU COMES TO YOUR HEART, IT MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE... IT IS NOT ENOUGH JUST SHAKING HEADS AND CLAPPING HANDS ...

JUST BECAUSE SOME ONE INTRODUCED HIM, HE IS NOT AN ANGEL OR BECAUSE NONE KNOWS HIM , HE IS NOT A GHOST..... DON'T GO BY THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF OTHERS.... NEVER TRUST ANY ONE ON THIS.... PROBABLY THEIR ASSESSMENT MAY BE WRONG OR THE RELATIONSHIP WHICH THEY SHARED WITH HIM MIGHT HAVE BEEN ALRIGHT.....
SOME ONE INTRODUCED 'X' TO 'Y' AND SAID HE IS 'GURUJI'S' DISCIPLE..... 'X' PLAYED SOME MISCHIEF..... PLEASE DON'T GO BY SUCH RECOMMENDATIONS.... I WILL NOT DARE TO INTRODUCE ANY ONE TO YOU.... I DON'T DO SUCH THINGS.... IF YOU STILL TRUST OTHERS, YOU MAY LAND IN TROUBLE.....

IT IS VERY NATURAL OF SOME GETTING HURT WITH WHAT OTHERS SAY..... VERY RARELY WE SEE SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE WITHOUT ANY EXPECTATIONS IN ANY FORM OF RELATIONSHIP..... FURTHER  PEOPLE LACK THE 'DON'T-BOTHER-ATTITUDE' AND ARE FULL OF 'BIG-BROTHER-ATTITUDE'.... SO BE CAUTIOUS WITH SUCH PEOPLE..

SHE CHATTED WITH HIM LATE AT NIGHT, ENCOURAGED HIM.... FINALLY HE LOST HIS BALANCE AND TOLD HER THAT 'SHE IS BEAUTIFUL'..... SHE TRAPPED HIM AND FORWARDED HER CHAT TO SOME ELDER....
I JUST BURST IN TO LAUGHTER ON HEARING THIS.... A CLASSICAL EXAMPLE OF A COWARD MALE BEING TAKEN FOR A RIDE BY A SHREWD FEMALE.....

A CAPACITY TO FORGIVE, STEMS FROM THE CAPACITY TO UNCONDITIONALLY LOVE..... WHEN YOU BRIM WITH LOVE, COMPASSION WILL BIND YOU.... THERE WILL BE NO SCOPE TO AVENGE OR SEEK REVENGE.... ALL ACTS OF BARBARIC NATURE WILL BE FORGIVEN WITH PEACE ALL AROUND..... IF A PERSON CANNOT UNCONDITIONALLY LOVE, HE CANNOT FORGIVE ANYONE AND LIVES A LIFE FULL OF REMORSE AND SELF PITY.... THIS WILL FUME HIM UP TO AVENGE AND SEEK REVENGE...

IT IS THE MIND WHICH GETS EASILY INFLUENCED..... THE MIND IS VERY CUNNING BUT AT TIMES WHEN IT GETS INFLUENCED, IT LOOKS NAIVE TO ME.... MIND NEEDS TO BE WATCHED BY THE SOUL..... SO THE HEART SHOULD SUPERVISE THE MIND SO THAT THE MIND DOESN'T FALL IN TO THE TRAP OF ILLUSIONS, WHICH IT WILL BEGIN TO BELIEVE IT TO BE TRUE....

MIND CAN BE CONDITIONED.... SOUL CANNOT BE INFLUENCED..

Seshagiri Gollapudi Guruji,forgiveness to which extent. Inspite of our continued love with total excuses for the negative attitude ,taking us for granted as use and throw attitude, can't we stop at one point.pl clarify and excuse me if I am wrong
SESHA, I CAN UNDERSTAND YOUR FRUSTRATION...BUT TO LOVE MEANS NOT TO EXPECT ANYTHING IN RETURN.... THAT ACT IS COMPASSION...WHETHER YOUR LOVE IS RECIPROCATED OR NOT, YOUR COMPASSION FOR OTHERS HAS TO REMAIN THE SAME...IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OTHERS...YOU SHOULD SEARCH FOR THAT ETERNAL JOY INSIDE YOU, INSTEAD OF LOOKING FOR IT OUTSIDE, WHILE CARING THE OTHER WITH COMPASSION...

ONE WHO IS ABLE TO SEE 'CONFUSION' INTENTLY, WILL ALWAYS SUCEED IN SOLVING IT... MOSTLY WE LACK PATIENCE TO OBSERVE ANYTHING IN LIFE....

DO BUSINESS TO THE EXTENT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF.... DON'T BORROW TOO MUCH BEYOND YOUR CAPACITY MORE SO WHILE STARTING A NEW BUSINESS.... IN ANY NEW BUSINESS, THERE WILL BE A LOT OF TEETHING PROBLEMS..... ADDING TO THAT IF FINANCE IS BORROWED AND INVESTED, IT WILL BE A HUGE BURDEN.... DON'T LET YOUR DESIRES TO TRANSGRESS IN TO GREED..

Ahbao Low Pranams Guruji, what is compassion? is it sympathy or pity at another's suffering and hoping they feel better?
NOT JUST PITY...... NOT MERELY HOPING THAT  THEY FEEL BETTER.... BUT LOVINGLY ACT AS DEEMED FIT UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES BY BEING HELPFUL IN ALL WAYS.... WHAT EVER YOU DO WILL REFLECT THE DEGREE OF COMPASSION.... TO THE EXTENT YOU HAVE GONE IN HELPING THE OTHER WITHOUT ANY EXPECTATIONS AND PURELY DUE TO LOVE..

May 2018 -6

IF YOU CONSIDER YOUR RELATIONSHIP AS A DISCIPLE TO BE DIVINE WITH ME, YOU SHOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING WHICH WILL TAMPER THE DIVINITY OF THE GURU-SISHYA RELATIONSHIP..... YOU SHOULD FIRST STOP CANVASSING FOR ME... I DON'T WANT ANY MEMBERSHIP DRIVES.... I AM NOT A POLITICIAN RUNNING A POLITICAL PARTY.... IN CASE YOU DO ANYTHING THAT HARMS THE SYSTEM OF GURU KULAM, YOU WILL BE SHOWN THE EXIT DOOR.... I DON'T WANT INDISCIPLINED, TALKATIVE, RUMOUR MONGERING DISCIPLES IN MY GURU KULAM.... ANY ONE FOUND INDULGING IN ANY ACT THAT BRINGS DISREPUTE TO THE ORGANISATION OR THE SCHOOL OF PRAYOGA WILL BE DEBARRED FOR EVER FROM COMING ANY WHERE NEAR US....BE GUIDED ACCORDINGLY.....

JUST BECAUSE THE INTERVIEWER IS ASKING DOESN'T MEAN THAT HE KNOWS THE ANSWER..... HE MAY BE SEARCHING FOR AN ANSWER BY QUESTIONING THE INTERVIEWEES... IF YOU CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION FOR WHICH HE HAS NO REPLY, YOU WILL GET THE JOB...

WHAT IS HAPPENING 'NOW' IS THE REALITY...THIS IS THE MOMENT.... PAST IS ALREADY DEAD AND THE FUTURE IS STILL NOT BORN, THIS MOMENT OF TIME IS REAL AND NEEDS TO BE ENJOYED..... SO LEARN ENJOYING LIFE FROM MOMENT TO MOMENT WITHOUT ANY BLEND OF EXPECTATIONS....

THE REALITY OF THE PRESENT MOMENT IS HUGE, WHILE COMPARING TO THE ILLUSORY FUTURISTIC MOMENTS....

FEAR MAKES ONE FEEL INSECURE..... HOARDING STARTS DUE TO FEAR.... PEOPLE TEND TO BUY MORE AND STOCK..... THIS TENDENCY CREATES AN ARTIFICIAL DEMAND AND PRICES WILL SOAR.... JUST A GROUP OF A FEW HUNDRED PEOPLE FEARING INSECURE, CAN BRING A LOT OF DAMAGE TO THE SOCIETY.....
FUTURE IS ALWAYS UNCERTAIN AND THE WISEST WAY TO LIVE LIFE IS MOMENT TO MOMENT..... THE MORE YOU THINK OF THE UNCERTAIN FUTURE, YOU WILL TEND TO FEAR AND FEEL MORE INSECURE.....

WHEN YOU JOIN AN ORGANISATION, YOU JOIN WITH A LOT OF EXPECTATIONS OF CAREER GROWTH ETC., YOU NEVER THINK AS TO HOW MUCH MORE YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMPANY, INSTEAD OF CAREER GROWTH.... HUMAN MIND IS SELFISH.... IT ONLY WANTS TO GET MORE AND MORE, BUT GIVE OUT VERY LESS...

MOSTLY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO DECIDE BECAUSE WE CANNOT DECIDE HONESTLY..... EVEN IF WE DECIDE HONESTLY , WE CANNOT LIVE UP TO THE DECISION SO MADE.... WE ARE BASICALLY NOT TRUTHFUL TO DECIDE HONESTLY..... WE HAVE CROOKED IDEAS TO BE IMPLEMENTED IN THE FORM OF EXPECTATIONS.... WE LIVE IN A MYSTICAL DREAM OF MULTIPLE CHOICES.... WE HAVE ALONG WAY TO GO....

ARE WE TRUTHFUL TO OURSELVES OR ARE WE PRETENDING TO BE SOME ONE ELSE OR SOME THING ELSE? PRETENSIONS FALSIFIES LIFE..... MANY PRETEND THROUGH OUT LIFE AND IN THE EVENING TIME ARE NOT ABLE TO EXCUSE THEMSELVES, START LIVING APOLOGETICALLY WITH GUILT....

BEING TRUTHFUL TO ONESELF IS THE BASIC STEP TOWARDS HONESTY.... ONE HAS TO BE TRUTHFUL TO HIMSELF TO BE INVOLVED IN DECISION MAKING BASED ON HONESTY...ONE WHO CANNOT BE TRUTHFUL TO HIMSELF CAN NEVER BE TRUTHFUL TO OTHERS....

STRESS MOSTLY ARISES DUE TO DISHONESTY IN DECISION MAKING....A PERSON WHO IS HONEST IN DECISION MAKING NEVER FACES A SITUATION OF 'EXECUTIVE STRESS'...DISHONEST DECISIONS ARISING OUT OF FUELLED EXPECTATIONS LEADS TO STRESS, WHILE FACING THE REALITY..

MANY TIMES WE EVALUATE NOT ONLY OTHERS ACTION BUT ALSO OURS..... EVALUATING OTHERS ACTION MAY BE A PART OF YOUR DUTY DUE TO OFFICIAL COMPULSIONS, BUT EVALUATING ONE SELF IS NEVER TO BE ALLOWED....
WHEN YOU INTROSPECT YOURSELF, YOU JUST WITNESS YOUR ACTIONS, BUT SHOULD NOT JUDGE..... MANY OF US START JUDGING AND HENCE THE GUILT.... IN THIS WORLD, YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED BY GOD TO BE THERE WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS AND WITNESS YOUR BEHAVIOUR AND DRAW CONCLUSION....WE MUST DEVELOP THE ART OF WITNESSING AND BRINGING IN FINER CHANGES IN OURSELVES WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY..... EVERY WORK IS GOD'S WORK AND HE IS THE DOER.... SUBTLY BY FEELING GUILTY, YOU EXHIBIT YOUR EGO BEFORE THE LORD TO PROVE THAT YOU ARE THE DOER WHICH IS JUST PREPOSTEROUS.....

WHEN ONE KEEPS THINKING MORE ABOUT HIMSELF, HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN A TRAP OF FEAR AND ILLUSION.. SUCH PEOPLE ARE  GENERALLY GREEDY AND FULL OF EXPECTATIONS..... OF COURSE THEY WILL BE HIGHLY OPPORTUNISTIC...

MANY TIMES WE EVALUATE NOT ONLY OTHERS ACTION BUT ALSO OURS..... EVALUATING OTHERS ACTION MAY BE A PART OF YOUR DUTY DUE TO OFFICIAL COMPULSIONS, BUT EVALUATING ONE SELF IS NEVER TO BE ALLOWED....
WHEN YOU INTROSPECT YOURSELF, YOU JUST WITNESS YOUR ACTIONS, BUT SHOULD NOT JUDGE..... MANY OF US START JUDGING AND HENCE THE GUILT.... IN THIS WORLD, YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED BY GOD TO BE THERE WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS AND WITNESS YOUR BEHAVIOUR AND DRAW CONCLUSION....WE MUST DEVELOP THE ART OF WITNESSING AND BRINGING IN FINER CHANGES IN OURSELVES WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY..... EVERY WORK IS GOD'S WORK AND HE IS THE DOER.... SUBTLY BY FEELING GUILTY, YOU EXHIBIT YOUR EGO BEFORE THE LORD TO PROVE THAT YOU ARE THE DOER WHICH IS JUST PREPOSTEROUS.....

THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO INTROSPECT AND LEARN LESSONS OUT OF IT, BUT NOT FEEL GUILTY.... YOU ARE NOT A SINNER FOR NEVER ANY ACTION IS YOURS.... EVERY ACTION IS JUST A MIRROR REFLECTION OF LORD'S ACTION, PERFORMED AS THOUGH IT IS YOURS... IT'S JUST AN ILLUSION...... WHEN IT IS LORD'S ACTION AND IT IS LORD'S BUSINESS WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE HIM?

SOME TIMES WE ARE GUILTY... SOME TIMES WE PRESUME WE ARE GUILTY..... IN BOTH THE CASES YOU CAN NEVER BE GUILTY, FOR YOU ARE NOT THE DOER..... THE GUILT COMES TO MANY WHO GO IN TO DETERMINE WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG.... FIRST OF ALL WHEN THE DIVINE WILL OF GOD IS TAKING PLACE IN LIFE AS A DRAMA, YOU ARE JUST SUPPOSE TO OBSERVE, GAIN EXPERIENCE, LEARN OUT OF IT AND LET GO OFF THE INCIDENT.... WE DON'T DO IT, BECAUSE ALL LONG WE MIGHT HAVE JUDGED OTHERS RIGHTS AND WRONGS... SOME TIMES WE MIGHT HAVE PASSED COMMENTS ABOUT THEIR BEHAVIOUR, NOT REALISING THAT CERTAIN THINGS DO HAPPEN IN EVERY ONE'S LIFE AND WE SHOULD NOT EXCEED THE BRIEF.....

DO YOUR DUTY.... BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER IT'S GOD WHO DOES THE WORK THROUGH YOU..... INCIDENTALLY HE HAS DECIDED YOU TO BE THERE FOR HIM AND HE USES YOU..... NOTHING MORE OR LESS....
NONE OF YOU ACTIONS ARE YOURS.... IT'S ALL LORD'S WILL, MERCY AND GRACE.... YOU ARE JUST A TINY PART IN HIS BIGGER SCHEME OF THINGS WHICH WE CANNOT UNDERSTAND WITH THE LEVELS OF HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS WE POSSESS....

DROP THE ATTITUDE OF BEING A GOOD ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF AND BEING A WORST JUDGE FOR OTHERS....

SHE WAS A NICE AND A SMART GIRL OF 44 YEARS..... SHE TOOK GOOD CARE OF HER FAMILY.... SHE WAS INDIVIDUALISTIC IN OUT LOOK..... A VERY TRADITIONAL GIRL.... SHE WAS LIGHTING LAMP FOR THE TULASI IN HER GARDEN....SHE HAD A MASSIVE CARDIAC ARREST AND PASSED AWAY.... SHE LEAVES BEHIND A TEENAGE BOY AND HER LOVING HUSBAND.....
OUR PRAYERS TO LORD TO GIVE THE FAMILY THE COURAGE AND CONVICTION TO FURTHER CARRY ON WITH LIFE..... OUR PRAYERS FOR THE SOUL TO REST IN PEACE....

A STORY FROM UPANISHAD....
A MASTER HAPPENED TO SEE A BOY.... HE WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE BOY....
MASTER....'I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE YOU WITH ME AND TEACH SPIRITUAL PRACTICES....WHEN YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN?'
THE BOY....'MASTER, I WILL ASK PERMISSION OF MY MOTHER AND COME BACK TO YOU'....
THE BOY WENT TO HIS MOTHER AND TOLD WHAT THE MASTER HAD OPINED...
MOTHER SAID...'YOU ARE VERY YOUNG.... YOU HAVE TO COMPLETE YOUR SCHOOLING AND COLLEGE.... TELL THE MASTER THAT YOU WILL COME AFTER THAT'....
THE BOY INFORMED THE MASTER AND THE WISE MAN SMILED....
AFTER SCHOOL AND COLLEGE EDUCATION, THE MASTER REMINDED THE BOY AND THE BOY ASKED HIS MOTHER....
HIS MOTHER SAID...'JUST NOW YOU COMPLETED YOUR EDUCATION, YOU HAVE TO GO FOR JOB AND EARN FOR THE FAMILY'....
THE BOY INFORMED THE MASTER AND THE MASTER SMILED....
SLOWLY THE BOY WENT FOR A JOB, THEN GOT MARRIED..... BEGOT CHILDREN... SEND THEM TO SCHOOL.... EDUCATED THEM... GOT THEM MARRIED....SAW PLENTY OF GRAND CHILDREN....
NOW AT THE AGE OF 70, HE APPROACHED THE MASTER WHO WAS 100 BY THEN....
THE MASTER AGREED TO START THE SPIRITUAL LESSONS BEFORE THAT TOOK HIM TO SEA SHORE AND WAS LOOKING AT THE SEA....
THE AGED MAN LOST PATIENCE AND ASKED THE MASTER....'AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, I HAVE COME TO YOU FOR EDUCATION AND YOU ARE BUSY LOOKING AT THE SEA'....
THE MASTER LAUGHED AND SAID...'DON'T WORRY... HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF PATIENCE.... ONCE THE WAVES STOP, I WILL BE STARTING THE LESSONS... I AM JUST WAITING FOR THE WAVES TO STOP'.....

ALL SAID AND DONE LIFE IS EPHEMERAL...WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN IT WILL END TO RE BEGIN ONCE AGAIN....DO SOMETHING FOR THE WORLD AT LARGE IN THIS SHORT SPAN OF LIFE, SO THAT YOU MAY CARRY THOSE SWEET MEMORIES WITH YOUR SOUL.....

THE TRUE HAPPINESS IS WITHIN YOU..... UNLESS YOU REALISE THIS, YOU WILL FIND A LOT OF SUFFOCATION IN THE NAME OF BONDAGE IN LIFE....

THE SOUL IS ALWAYS IN PEACE.... IT IS MORE OUR DOUBTS ABOUT THE SOUL MAKES US TO PRAY FOR IT'S PEACE.... SOUL IS JUST A SAKSHI BHOOTHA TO THE HAPPENINGS OF THE BODY AND MIND....

WHEN YOU HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS FROM YOUR LIFE AND ENJOY LIVING IT AS IT COMES, IT IS EASIER FOR YOU TO TAKE HONEST DECISIONS AND STICK ON TO IT...

WE CANNOT BE THE SAME... WE KEEP CHANGING EVERY MOMENT BASED ON OUR OWN EXPERIENCES AND ASSIMILATION THERE OF.... IF SOME ONE SAYS THAT HE HAS NOT CHANGED, IT MEANS HE IS DEAD..... HIS LIFE  IS JUST  LIKE A SKELETON IN A COFFIN..... IT JUST REMAINS AS REMAINS..... ANYTHING FULL WITH LIFE KEEPS CHANGING.... ANYTHING ON DEATH, REMAINS AS IT IS...SO IF HE HAS NOT CHANGED IT MEANS HE IS ALREADY DEAD'.......

HE.....'YOU HAD TOLD ME 10 YEARS BACK...'...
I JUST SAID....'STOP..... I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT I SAID YESTERDAY, LEAVE ALONE WHAT WAS TOLD 10 YEARS BACK...... I AM EVOLVING... EVERY DAY I AM UNDERGOING A CHANGE BASED ON MY ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCES.... I DON'T KEEP THINKING ABOUT PAST.... SO IF I HAVE TOLD SOMETHING 10 YEARS BACK, IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN TOLD KEEPING THAT DAY CIRCUMSTANCES.... TODAY IT MAY OR MAY NOT APPLICABLE... USE YOUR DISCRETION TO FOLLOW OR NOT TODAY'....

I HAVE NOT COME HERE TO TELL YOU WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG?
I HAVE NOT COME HERE TO PREACH ABOUT BEING GOOD OR AVOIDING THE EVIL.....
I HAVE NOT COME HERE TO CONDITION YOU WITH ANY PHILOSOPHY OR SCHOOL OF THOUGHT....
THEN WHY DID I COME?
JUST FOR FUN..... TO BE WITH YOU AND DANCE WITH YOU ACCORDING TO THE TUNES PLAYED BY GOD....
WE HAVE BEEN ONLY DOING THIS, IN THE PAST THOUSANDS OF YEARS, OF OUR RELATIONSHIP....

JUST BECAUSE, I HAVE NOT ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION, DOESN'T MEAN THAT I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER.... IT'S JUST THAT I DON'T WANT TO ANSWER...  THAT WAY, I CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY BY MAKING YOU THINK THAT, I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER.....
OF COURSE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO QUESTION OR NOT AND I HAVE THE RIGHT TO ANSWER OR NOT.... I AM JUST EXERCISING MY RIGHT NOT TO ANSWER TO MAKE YOU FEEL HAPPY OF HAVING SCORED A POINT OVER ME.... AFTER ALL, I AM IN THE BUSINESS OF MAKING OTHERS HAPPY AND THAT IS MY BUSINESS MODULE AND ETHICS....

LORD SHOWS SOME PEOPLE WITH AN INCORRIGIBLE ATTITUDE OF ARGUING.... PLEASE REMEMBER THAT TOO IS HIS DIVINE WILL AND PLAY.... HE JUST WANTS TO SHOW CASE TO YOU , 'HOW NOT TO BE'.... THEY TOO COME TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS DRAMA.... BUT YOU DON'T ARGUE WITH THEM... LET THEM ENJOY HAVING A FEELING THAT THEIR ARGUMENTS CANNOT BE COUNTERED.... MAKE THEM FEEL HAPPY THAT WAY... BUT NEVER DRAG YOURSELF BY PARTICIPATING IN ARGUMENTS....

JUST STOP ARGUING.... IT'S BETTER TO BE SILENT..... YOU HAVE NOT COME HERE TO PROVE ANYTHING.... YOU HAVE JUST COME TO LIVE LIFE AND DANCE TO THE TUNES OF GOD.... YOU ARE HIS TOY... YOU CAME FOR HIS ENTERTAINMENT... NOTHING MORE OR NOTHING LESS.... BE PEACEFUL AND ENJOY YOUR EXISTENCE, FOR WHICH IT IS BETTER TO KEEP AWAY FROM THOSE WHO ARGUE....

THERE IS NOTHING TO FEEL INFERIOR OR SUPERIOR ABOUT YOURSELF..... YOU ARE UNIQUE AND CANNOT BE COMPARED.... DROP COMPARISONS..... DON'T PLAY A SECOND FIDDLE TO WHAT OTHERS DO AND FEEL FOR IT AT A LATER STAGE.... THERE IS NO NECESSITY TO FOLLOW ANY ONE, SINCE YOU ARE UNIQUE.... ANYTHING UNIQUE CANNOT HAVE A FOLLOWING OR BE FOLLOWED... YOU ARE A PRICELESS GIFT OF GOD.....
